    She's very awesome at helping. She was just researching how to remove our sunroof shade without dropping the headliner to replace the sagging fabric on it.

    Hey I have some extra 10 spline rear axle shafts if you want them. I changed all of mine over to 24.

    So I got a little done today. Cam is in, parts cleaned up, realized I have the wrong water pump gasket. Also realized I forgot to order the cam and crank gears for the timing. Those are all ordered now. Sigh. I can still put the heads on tomorrow, just no lifters, pushrods, or rockers yet.

    Not much for progress today. I was like I can still go put the heads on. Got out to garage and realized I also didn't get head bolts. DOH. So I have a set of those on the way also.

    We did take the dog to Chatfield's off leash dog park.

    Ok Head bolts arrived so I have put the heads on. I'm still waiting for my cam and crank timing gears so I can close up the front of the engine then put the lifters, pushrods, rockers, etc on.

    More update.

    New cam and crank gears for timing chains are on, front engine cover is on, correct water pump gasket arrived and is installed, some accessory brackets and parts are going on. Next is installing new lifters and putting push rods and rockers back on then setting clearance.

    Brad Peterson do I set the valves on this just like other small block chevys where you unload the rocker so the push rod is free then just tighten the rocker down so it just touches the push rod? Then test the hydraulic lifter still compresses as they are not pumped up yet. I know to soak them in oil first before installing and I'll use assembly lube between the lifter and cam at the contact points.

    Then I can put on the valley pan gasket and intake manifold. I'm still going to pull the oil pump apart, inspect it, replace the gasket, and pack it with Vaseline for priming. I'm ordering a drill oil pump primer shaft unless someone has one I can borrow. I intend to have this engine fully primed before starting. Luckily with a distributor motor and this oil pump drive system I should be able to do that.

    I'm getting so excited. I just can't hide it.

    And more update. Lifters, push rods, rocker arms, valley pan gasket, intake manifold all on. Oil pan cleaned up and ready to install. I have the wrong oil pan gasket. The one rimmer bros sent was too long. ??

    The engine is out. Time to pull the transmission and transfercase then clean up the engine bay and frame rails and put the replacement engine in. We also recovered the sunroof shade with new fabric and came up with a name for the rig. Our Range Rover is now known as "Tommy".

    I forgot to post the picture to explain why we now call the Rover "Tommy". The wife grabbed some Tommy Bahama fabric for us to recover the dirty saggy sunroof shade. Now we just need to clean up that edge trim.

    Today the transmission and T-case are out of the Rover. We will be installing the newer ones together also. I think it's just easier at this point.

    Working on getting the transmission and xfer case back in today. Man I'm outta shape for this kinda work.

    Shifter cable hooked up, e brake hooked up, one transmission mount to frame mount bolting together. Using my harbor freight transmission jack under the tranny pan and my floor jack under the transfer case.

    Woohoo. The transmission mount and transfer case mount bolts are in and they are basically in place. I still have the jack under them until I install the cross brace. Wires and cables are all hooked up. I need to grab a new bolt tomorrow for one of the mounts and I can button that part up. I thought the transmission was empty and the drain bolt was in the way so I pulled it out and made a huge mess on the floor under the rover. When I'm done mounting these the floor and tools under the rover are all getting cleaned up for the next stage. I'm sore.
